Pussy Riot Launches Proof of Protest NFT Against Roe Vs Wade Ruling

The Russian feminist protest and conceptual art collective Pussy Riot has just launched the Proof of Protest NFT Collection on the Lens Protocol. All proceeds from the collection go to support reproductive rights in light of the Roe vs Wade ruling.

Pussy Riot’s “Proof of Protest” NFT collection.

What is the Proof of Protest NFT collection?

The Proof of Protest NFT collection was created by Pussy Riot in collaboration with Ksti Hu. The artwork features a glass bottle, branded with a “Feminism” label. Undoubtedly, it is a strong protest piece that opposes the Supreme Court of the United States’s ruling that overturned the landmark 1973 Roe vs Wade case.

It is not only a strong collection in itself but also an extension of other Pussy Riot statement pieces. These include “Panic Attack”, “Virgin Mary, Please Become a Feminist”, ACAB, “Drink My Blood” and “Riot Girls”.

The Proof of Protest NFT drop has just launched at 2 p.m. EST today. Minting lasts 24 hours on Lenster – a decentralized microblogging and social networking platform powered by the Lens protocol.

All funds from the Proof of Protest NFT collection will go to support reproductive rights. In fact, UnicornDAO set up a new ETH wallet, LegalAbortion.eth as a donation hub alongside Endaoment. Pussy Riot, in collaboration with the DAOs, will distribute the proceeds to Center for Reproductive Rights, Fund Texas Choice, Sister Song, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Fos Feminista, Planned Parenthood as well as URGE.

According to Stani Kulechov, CEO of Aave Companies, the development team behind Lens Protocol: “By allowing activists like Pussy Riot to go direct-to-audiences with a technology that makes NFT minting as simple as posting or liking a post, Lens is empowering a new generation of humanitarians with a way to make an immediate global impact without fear of censorship.”
